We funded 83 new research studies in the past 5 years (2010-2014) at three Iowa universities at a cost of more than $9.4 million:
Coe College, Cedar Rapids
Iowa State University, Ames
University of Iowa, Iowa City at a cost of more than $7.56 million.
Nationwide, we invest almost $145 million a year ($3.7 billion since 1949) in heart and stroke research that has led to recent breakthroughs such as clot-busting drugs and drug-eluting stents. Healthcare providers learn about medical advances and new treatment guidelines though our journals, conferences and online courses.
